Eat at Trattoria Athena

My wife and I ate at Trattoria Athena a couple of years ago shortly after it had opened and I thought that its reach had extended its length somewhat. But tonight we had a fantastic dinner there and would recommend highly eating here. Spreads of taramasolatta (sp?) and tzadtziki were delicious especially (to me) the tzadtziki. Very flavorful. The greek and italian olive oils were intensley olively on bread slices. Welk salad---sliced welks with lemon juice, shalots and hot peppers over arugula---yum. Excellent goat kabobs with rice, grilled zucchini and greek yogurt. Also excellent were lamb chops with roasted greek style potatoes. For dessert tiramisu very chocolately and not sweet was well done although I like mine with more mascarpone. A scoop of Greek coffee ice cream and one of pine resin were very tasty and refreshing. We had a bottle of Greek Roditis white wine which was dry and flavorful. My only complaint was that the greek coffee was weak.

Go there, eat well and enjoy.
